Cool I've been to both #1 and #2

#1 on the list is very difficult to get to, but the trip is well worth it!
Quote:
  1. Havasupai Waterfall – Grand Canyon
    The Havasu ’Baaja' or more commonly the Havasupai, are a Native American tribe located in the northwestern part of the American state of Arizona. The tribe is well-known for being the only permanent inhabitants in the Grand Canyon, where they have lived for over 800 years. It also holds the distinction of being one of the only places left in America whose mail is still delivered by mule, the other being Phantom Ranch. But the main "claim-to-fame" for the Tribe is its richly colored waters and its awe-inspiring waterfalls, both of which have made this small community become a bustling tourist hub that attracts thousands of people every year.
  2. Niagara Falls – New York
    Niagara Falls is a group of massive waterfalls located on the Niagara River on the border between the United States and Canada. The Falls are comprised of three separate waterfalls: Horseshoe Falls , American Falls, and the smaller, adjacent Bridal Veil Falls. Niagara Falls is very wide, and is by far the most voluminous waterfall in North America. Niagara Falls is renowned for its beauty, and is a valuable source of hydroelectric power. A popular tourist site for over a century, the Falls are shared between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario.

I'd have to add a couple more to the list -

Burney Falls, McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial Park, CA:


and one of my favorites,

Chittenango Falls, Chittenango Falls State Park, NY:


Neither are the biggest, but both beautiful!

I have additional links to waterfall locations (mostly in the east) on my Waterfalls Links page.

I think Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge deserve recognition. There are many, many falls in the gorge! Oregonians are so very fortunate to be able to experience beauty such as this all over our state.

There is a night tour in Yosemite. The falls are phosphorescent in the moonlight.
The boat ride at Niagara is memorable.
